Clarets out of Kilgallon chase

16 Jan 2010 - 10:33:31

Burnley have ended their interest in signing Sheffield United centre-half Matthew Kilgallon due to concerns over the player's wage demands.

The 26-year-old former Leeds United stopper is a reported target for several Premier League clubs, but Burnley have now exited the race for Kilgallon's signature.

A statement from the Clarets read: "Burnley Football can confirm an interest in signing Sheffield United central defender Matthew Kilgallon.

"However, the club is not prepared to meet the agent's excessive wage demands for his player.

"Contrary to a national newspaper report, the club has no intention of breaking its wage structure and disrupting the togetherness of a united squad.

"Burnley Football Club will instead look elsewhere for reinforcements."
